(AP) - A jury in Boston has found against Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis in his medical malpractice lawsuit. Weis claimed two doctors botched his care after he had gastric bypass surgery five years ago.
The jury found Massachusetts General Hospital surgeons Charles Ferguson and Richard Hodin were NOT negligent. Weis is the former offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. He accused the surgeons of negligence for allowing him to bleed internally for 30 hours before performing a second surgery to correct the complication.
Weis became gravely ill after the surgery and nearly died. He testified that he still has numbness and pain in his feet and sometimes has to use a motorized cart.
